Which Head Unit to buy...

I'm planning on purchasing a new Single DIN head unit soon. I would like to spend around $150 or so. I've been looking at Alpines. I really don't know what brand or model to buy. Can some one please help me make this decision? Post pics if you have them. Thanks!

ALPINE CDM-9821
These are the only ones i've found so far that fit in the price range. It doesn't have to ALPINE but i've heard that they are good.

If you prefer something else. Let me know. I liked these because the buttons light up green. (like my clock and A/C controls)
